School Reviews

  • Recommended December 05, 2010 - This school has need in every area. Difficulties begin with individual school board members. The members have personal agendas for joining. Mostly, it ensures their family members will be hired as teachers and their children will receive special treatment in academics and athletic programs. This causes a great deal of confusion with rules and guidelines. Recently this also resulted in the loss of our school's band, music, art, foreign language, and all extracurricular activities in favor of boys ball teams. - Posted by Parent
